In order to ease the process of sending Income Tax Return acknowledgment documents, the Department of Post has introduced a unique pin code.
According to a PTI report, persons filing their tax returns can send their mails to Central Processing Centre in a swift manner using the pin code of 560500. This will also ensure that documents reach the CPC and the assesses without any delay and no documents are lost.
Prior to this, the Central Processing Centre used to have the pincode of 560100 which was marked for the entire Electronic City area of the city.
"There used to be grievances where taxpayers complained that they have sent their ITR-V (acknowledgement for ITR filing) through post to the CPC but it did not reach the centre. Certain other documents sought by the centre from an assesse to ensure timely refunds also used to get lost or never reach. The new pin code is meant exclusively to cater to CPC of the Income Tax department and it will now help to curb the complaints and issues of non-reaching of postal mails," a senior officer told PTI.
